Today, we kick off the week with Bat For Lashes' new video for 3rd single, Sleep Alone, from the album Two Suns. A dark and haunting song with the quintessential Natasha Khan power behind it, this track holds a certain signifigance in the Beast life.
See, about 2-3 months ago, I was going through some rough stuff, which led to not a whole lot of sleeping. The only way, it seemed, it get any slumber was to place the headphones on and lay down to the soothing sounds of Bat For Lashes. And for whatever reason, each time that Sleep Alone came on, I was able to breathe, calm myself and snag a handful of z's.
So thank you Natasha for the gorgeous song, and now, the subsequently brilliant video.
Can she do any wrong? I say no! Two Suns is easily at the top of the list for my album of the year.
While we're on the BFL subject, check out a remix of Sleep Alone as done by Dave Sitek, of TV On the Radio. Amazing.
